2004 BEST South End Restaurant, Neighborhood

Joe V’s

It’s been less than a year since this unassuming Italian bistro took over the spot once occupied by On the Park, and Joe V’s has already shown that it can hold its own in a neighborhood crowded with great restaurants. The excellent food at reasonable prices ranges from thin-crust pizzas with a tangy, garlicky sauce, to confidently executed classics (lobster ravioli), while delicious brunch dishes (the South Beach omelet, with Egg Beaters, ham, and tomato) keep the locals dropping in all weekend long.
